Well, let’s not jump to conclusions here. Your device might not have WiFi issues, my device most certainly has. For customers who are considering buying your 50 USD premium firmware, any assistance in understanding what is causing this issue would be highly appreciated.
My device came with a patched Wifi driver, which as my tests confirm perform well with OpenWrt. What I will do is to try to load the stock Newifi D2 Wifi EEPROM together with PCWrt firmware, and determine if my connection will not drop every two minutes when sitting upstairs.
In the meantime, could you please also answer my question regarding how PCWrt tries to keep in line with OpenWrt? I’m asking this from a security perspective (the main reason I would buy your firmware), i.e. how long would it take for a patched OpenWrt breach to find its way back into PCWrt?
Thanks in advance for your time answering my questions.
Hmm… since PCWRT is based on OpenWrt I would expect similar performance. That would mean that it is not the Wifi EEPROM but a different firmware setting in OpenWrt and PCWRT that causes the difference in performance. I would need to compare the /etc/config/wireless of both firmwares for that. Still it would be good to know what Wifi EEPROM you use. Is it the stock Newifi D2 Wifi EEPROM or is it an altered version? Looking forward to receiving more information about this. Thanks.
